A complete assessment of adaptive skills across the life span.
Widely used to evaluate people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, the ABAS-3 assesses adaptive behaviour in individuals from birth to 89 years of age. This convenient behaviour rating scale measures daily living skills--what people actually do, or can do, without the assistance of others. It is particularly useful in evaluating individuals with developmental delays, autism spectrum disorder, intellectual disability, learning disabilities, neuropsychological disorders and sensory or physical impairments.
The ABAS-3 can be used to:
- Assess adaptive behaviour skills
- Assist in identifying various developmental, learning and behavioural disabilities or disorders
- Identifying strengths and weaknesses for daily functional skills
- Develop intervention plans and goals
- Monitor progress over time
- Facilitate research and programme evaluations
The ABAS-3 includes updated norms and item content as well as simplified administration and interpretation. It assesses 11 essential skill areas within 3 major adaptive domains: Conceptual, Social and Practical.
Skill areas include:
- Community Use
- Functional Academics
- Health and Safety
- Home or School Living
